It's a silly argument though that Cloudy is going on with. It's semantics. I completely understand how something is stated and then the situation changes. It's never over until it's official.

Same as the Bateman signing. I assume it's a done deal but until it's official it really isn't.

Its not semantics. Pom never said it was a done deal. You said that The Pom said that. he didnt. Very straightforward actually.

I burned these highlights from my mind until your post. I was so salty when he left. I remember Ivan Cleary refused to release him because he was playing so well and he knew that our season would be over if we didn't have him. Ivan wouldn't let him leave because he was playing so well, so the bloke tanked so he could join another team.

A lot of these highlights are from the second half of 2016. He played so well for like 8 games straight.

Funnily enough, Ivan Cleary did the same thing to us lol.
Let's be real..

If you were in your best playing form of your whole life and had it in your head that you wanted to sign for the Wests Tigers, but in the end... they wanted to sign another 3 players before you...

I would be pretty salty.

inside info, whether true or false, makes this forum go round. just about every single member of this place scours this thread to see what's been said in the hope of a rumour. whether it comes off or not is a different matter but you can't help but sit back and enjoy the fun.

It's about getting a roll on isn't it.
Totally correct Earl, momentum is really hard to stop once a team gets on a roll.
Maybe holding a player down for an extra couple of seconds and risk giving away a 6 again or a penalty.

Yeah, Marzhew was a gun in the U/20's for Parra.

Was called Greg Leleisiuao back then.

Watching that video, i hope that try was called no try, he ran / stepped by his team mate in the middle of the ruck, obvious penalty every day !!

@CloudyGlock has been a fantastic poster over the years - some just don't know the history.

His intel over the years has been outstanding.

I remember certain retired mods taking a disliking to him (and continually shutting down his accounts) but he delivered on many occasions and a lot of people enjoyed and still enjoy when he is kind enough to share his info.

To those who are privy to more information than MOST of us - it's very appreciated when and if you choose to share.

Let's discuss player signings & rumours instead of trying to negate others for sharing what they choose to share.

Thanks 😊

He was worse than that he betrayed both the club and his team mates by deliberately playing poorly to be released.He should never be allowed back under any circumstances

I'm sick of reading this dead set load of crap
- The "Kid" had a poor game..... So What?
Was man of the match or there abouts the week before wasn't he?
People speak about it like he had bets on the game....
Maybe his head wasn't in it, Maybe he just had a poor game - Maybe the opposition frustrated him, shut him down or some such.

To claim he "Deliberately Tanked" to get a release like you're his mum and he told you a secret
is just garbage.

I've also seen Benji Marshall play so poorly you could assume he was being paid,
Assuming it and claiming it as fact are on opposite sides of the galaxy.

Cleary elected to pull Moses contract, who knows maybe he thought Nathan was heading to Concord who knows, but he did remove the contract. He did not remove tedesco's or Woods contract at the time they went and signed elsewhere.
I would have Moses back, he kicks goals can play 7 and return to play with his maye Brooks at 6. Sheens was not given the chance to work with teddy Moses Brooks back in 2014 but maybe this time he gets that chance to work with Moses and Brooks behind a very strong pack

One of the reasons many remember Moses' departure is for the reason he is a fine player and can do things on the field other halfbacks cannot. I want him back at WTs and I'm sure many other posters feel the same way. If he does return, he will do so as a mature young man. Moses and Brooks will learn from their collective experience, and this means WTs and teammates will benefit. I cannot see a downside.

That’s true for most, although some can’t help themselves and have try try cut everyone down.

I don't really want to wade into this ....but I think if a person wants to come out and make claims about being in the know they should at least own it when they are wrong ...if your not prepared to own your misinformation ...then don't post it ....Fair ????

If we're serious about junior development (local or poached), we should be looking at Ezra Mam not Moses.

This kid is going to be a star and he's off contract at the Broncos in 2024.

*Turn your volume down, the music is rubbish

Serious about junior development? That was months ago Leck. Try to keep up mate.

Put it to him that's he's unproven. It's.a fair deal and will give him the chance to get involved more in the game. He's only young so will have another couple of contracts.after it.
Exactly, part of his deal wouldn't just be money but the shot at fullback he might not get else where.
